The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2012: #42 - Fire And The Wheel

When it comes to year-end lists, y'all know I don't mess around. I don't post my picks from the previous year for weeks after the next year has started. In 2012, there was a bounty of music that entered the world that made me deliriously happy to be blessed with the sense of sound. So I pondered, marinated, and contemplated for weeks. Music from 2012 has been digested for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And now, friends, it's time. Time to share with you what I consider the cream of quite a crop indeed. You might see things omitted here that you think should be on a Best Of list. This list isn't what I think you want to read. This list is what I feel about last year. If it's not here, I either didn't spend enough time with it or just didn't love it enough. A big thank you to all of the artists who created the music that I fell in love with last year.

WHO: Fire and the Wheel

WHAT: Fire and the Wheel

WHEN: May 2012

WHERE: Self-released

WHY: When some of my favorite people around get together and make music, the results are probably going to turn out pretty well. But I wasn't prepared for what these boys did with their self-titled LP, going all concept album and totally un-DC, and in doing so made your humble blogstress extremely daggum proud.

MY JAM: "Long Way Down" "Horticulture is Not For Everyone" "The Wheel"
